Obituary of the week: Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Thatcher

With the passing of Baroness Margaret Thatcher, the world has lost one of the great champions of freedom and liberty, and America has lost a true friend. As a grocer’s daughter who rose to become Britain’s first female prime minister, she stands as an example to our daughters that there is no glass ceiling that can’t be shattered.” — U.S. President Barack Obama, “Statement from the President on the Passing of Baroness Margaret Thatcher“, The White House, 08.04.2013.

  1. We are all Thatcher’s children now, in Britain and in Europe, where the austerity policies she road-tested in the eighties are being applied as if there were no alternative and no tomorrow; Germany’s Angela Merkel is the lady not for turning now. In the week of Thatcher’s death, Britain has seen deep welfare cuts—deeper than hers—with tax cuts for top earners. — Maria Margaronis, “We Are All Thatcherites Now“, The Nation, 08.04.2013.
